Without preaching, moralizing, or theorizing, the authors of The Habit Change Workbook deliver a program for breaking bad habits. Grounded in proven cognitive-behavioral principles, the book helps readers assess their habits and proceed to dismantle them. The authors explain precisely how habits are formed, profile people who are trying to replace a bad habit with a good one, and encourage the reader by tracking the progress of these individuals. An interactive workbook provides helpful lists, monitoring forms, and exercises. Also included is detailed guidance on overcoming specific habits ranging from nail-biting and overeating to procrastinating and excessive spending. Final chapters provide information on support groups and other resources, and advise parents and family members how best to help a child or loved one who is struggling with a self-destructive habit.
